It’s also partnered with Budweiser to create an exclusive content studio for social platforms. American Family Insurance, the partner for the publication’s philanthropic arm, TPP Assist, produces content around athletes helping students in communities in need.

That investment looks a little smarter Wednesday after the NBA approved a few rule changes to limit the “Hack-a-Shaq” strategy. Whiteside has been the subject of the “Hack-a-Shaq” tactic at times, as he’s a 59.8 percent free-throw shooter for his NBA career but improved to make 75 percent of his free throws after the All-Star break last season. These are the rule changes that were approved at Tuesday’s NBA Board of Governors meeting, according to a news release from the league. They will go into effect starting this upcoming season: The current rule for away-from-the-play fouls applicable to the last two minutes of the fourth period (and last two minutes of any overtime) – pursuant to which the fouled team is awarded one free throw and retains possession of the ball – will be extended to the last two minutes of each period.”
